It has trust, innocence,passion, romance,sensuality,passion,history,lore, danger, intrigue, forgiveness and wit. The characters are bold, charming, witty, enchanting and you can't help but fall in love with each and everyone of them. This story is full of romance, passion and makes the Scottish Highlands come to live. The hero, Tristan, is charming, handsome, strong, battling his self to become a better person, a MacGregor, who is supposed to hate the Fergusson's whose father killed Tristan's beloved uncle and a true hero. The heroine, Isobel, is beautiful, strong willed, determined to keep her family safe, witty, and despises the MacGregor's whose father killed her father, after believing her killed their uncle some ten years prior. Tristan and Isobel embark on a tongue and cheek dialog that will lead them together and forever bond the MacGregor's and the Fergusson's to each other. This is a delightful story and shows how family can overcome tragedy and find true love. If you enjoy Scottish adventure and romance you will definitely enjoy this one.

In 1685 Tristan MacGregor attends the coronation of the Duke of York as the king. He rescues Isobel Fergusson, but also roguishly kisses her. They spend time together during the galas as they are attracted to one another. However, Isobel loathes his clan who killed her father and her kin; leaving her to raise her siblings on a patch of nothingness. Her family and his are hostile adversaries. Isobel returns home thinking of Tristan on the way and once she arrives there, she still cannot move pass his image. She knows she loves her rake. Tristan reciprocates. He decides he will marry the woman he loves and let the feud be damned, but she refuses. Patiently he tries to persuade her that he is until she finally begins to believe him. Tristan brings his beloved and her siblings to meet his family announcing they will marry. Both clans are stunned but reactions lead to shocking disclosures by MacGregor and Fergusson family members. Though the theme of feuding clans has been used frequently in historicals romances, Paula Quinn provides a fresh seventeenth century romance mostly due to lead couple especially the latest MacGregor (see Ravished by a Highlander and Laird of the Mists). Tristan with his persistence and tolerance makes the story line great as he calmly persuades his beloved (and her siblings) to trust her heart that he believes leads to him. Seduced by a Highlander is another winning historical by always dependable for excellence Paula Quinn. Harriet Klausner

This is my 8th book by Paula and my least favorite. It is a good read, only one surprise, but did have some laughs. I am surprised that the professional reviewer's rated it so highly. Still a must read since part of a series.. (ljb)

I liked this one far less than the two prequels to the series and ravished by a highlander but it's worth the read because of the attachment Paula has managed to give me to the overall story. I found the leading lady rather frustrating and annoying at times. There wasn't any advenure in this story as in the last book. We just had to read about Tristan being treated poorly and verbally abused while stuck in bed for a good chunk of the story. Any ways it's decent but I hope the next book is better

When you are growing up your family raises you to act one way, as an adult you start to believe in your heart that you could be another kind of person and then you encounter someone who releases you to be all these things and more. When you heart meets the source that causes it to beat you find peace in your soul and the strength to be a better person. Tristan MacGregor and Isobel Fergusson families have a long running feud that has brought more than enough bloodshed and death to both sides. The families were raised to hate each other and while Tristan has some reservations about this philosophy, Isobel on the other hand despises him and everything his family name brings up. Isobel lost both parents and has been forced to raise her younger brothers on a barely survivable piece of land all the while cursing the MacGregor's for causing this misery. The years have made her bitter and angry toward the MacGregor's and even after she meets Tristan and listens to all those charming words he says while the dimple flashes in his smile it cannot melt her heart, or can it. Tristan knows from the moment he had set his eyes upon Isobel that she is the one for him but how to convince her of this is a whole other matter. Tristan long ago buried the anger he felt at his family losses during this feud even the guilt from his belief he brought all this upon the families when a childish fight moved men to push one another to despair. But the depth of his feelings for Isobel shake him to his boots and when he chases her to her home and starts a collision of incidents that would drive weaker men away he is more than ever convinced Isobel is the woman for him. Now Tristan must show his sincerity to Isobel and prove that his feelings are pure in nature not brought about to cause more pain and that is a whole other feat he may not accomplish. Tristan must contend with her attitude, all those brothers that are looking for trouble and one in particular that needs to be tamed. But Tristan is patient and he has plans on how to win Isobel's heart and convince everyone that their love can bring peace in both families by using wit and not swords. As the days turn to weeks and the stories he spins of long ago knights and damsels in distress become more interesting the ice melts around Isobel's heart and too soon she finds herself completely ensnared in Tristan's trap or maybe it is the arms that are wrapped around her. Yet there is one hurdle that Tristan must knock down and that would be his family and to convince them that this is a love match is another story that makes one believe anything is possible with a determined man and a stubborn woman. But when all the skeletons come out of the closet and the truth no one can bear to hear is revealed will love be enough to keep them together? Paula Quinn has written another engrossing story in the MacGregor saga and this son is as enticing and fun as the last. The men are such wonderful hero's but such how venerable they can be which makes them that much more believable. Enjoy these two books and anticipate the ones coming up.

This is my favorite out of the kid's stories so far. Who won't fall in love with Tristan MacGregor and Isobel Fergusson

I think I liked book #1 better but this was good as well. I would've liked more build up of past characters, but the story is still good. Tristan finds himself in love with his family's enemy. But it's even harder for Isobel for forgive and forget as her entire family was also destroyed.

Loved the book, as usual, as with all of her other books. Ravished By a Highlander was more to my taste because of the bigger difficulty in getting the girl, i guess. But liked this story too!

I had not read Ms. Quinn's first book in this series, Ravished by a Highlander, but when the opportunity arose to read the 2nd book in the series, Seduced by a Highlander, I jumped on it! 10 years ago, young Tristan MacGregor got into a fight with young Alex Fegusson. It spiraled out of control and when the dust cleared, Tristan's favorite uncle was dead, and Alex's widowed father was dead too - leaving his older brother Patrick as leader of the Fergusson clan. Patrick and Isobel were still children themselves, and had to take care of their 5 younger brothers, leaving them susceptable to raids from stronger clans nearby. The bitterness between the MacGregors and Fergussons was deep and strong. I am a sucker for handsome, rogue-ish Highlanders. The kilts, the speech, the stubborn perseverance...I love it all. I liked Tristan, very much. He was a sympathetic hero - I don't know if you could call him a Beta hero or not - he knew how to fight and was good at it, but he preferred to convince you to see his way of things instead of beating you until you give in. His father and brothers were more prone to get their way by fighting, Tristan was more like his dead uncle. Isobel was a terrific heroine - spunky, opinionated, fiercely loyal to her family. She was a hard worker and cared for her brothers very much. I was captured from Isobel and Tristan's first meeting. The back-and-forth between them was lively and engaging. When Tristan goes to Isobel's home to try to set things right - hilarity ensues. Isobel's brothers were very funny, as was Tristan's reaction to them. I've said before I don't like kids in my romance stories but these kids were funny. I really, really enjoyed this book - the end was a bit abrubt, I would have liked a bit more detail, but other than that it was a sweet story.
